Dr. Box is a research scientist and currently lives in Copenhagen.  He has made sixteen expeditions to the Greenland ice sheet since 1994 and his time on the inland ice exceeds 1 year. He was awarded a NASA grant to support the installation and maintenance of Greenland EIS cameras. Dr. Box is active in Greenland field work for EIS and is using EIS photos from Greenland to measure glacier speed changes, putting precise numbers on glacier flow sensitivity to climate. As an authority on the relationship between Greenland glaciers and climate, he’s authored or co-authored more than 26 peer-reviewed publications directly related to ice and climate and has led, since 2003, the annual Greenland entries for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and American Meteorological Society’s “State of the Climate” report. He was a contributing author to “Climate Change 2007”, the definitive report on the science of global warming by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
